What the really great artists do is they’re entirely themselves. They’re entirely themselves, they’ve got their own vision, they have their own way of fracturing reality, and if it’s authentic and true, you will feel it in your nerve endings.

There is nothing like a quote from this brilliant guy. The world lost a unique perspective when he took his own life, yet he still has a lot to give through his words and this… this quote is inspiring – especially on a Monday, staring at a blank page. It invites us to dig through ourselves. Thanks and cheers, Robin. xo

I’ve been thinking a lot about him. Ever since I read this post.

It’s tragic that the person who wrote the referenced notes in the post ended up killing himself. Depression is a difficult disorder. I am sympathetic, although, thankfully I’ve never suffered. Still, there is a lot of food for thought in what he wrote … food we’ve probably all taken a bite of and then spit out because we’re too afraid… to find the things that are worth living for and of being ourselves.
